Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 24 January 2014

Very very cold here last night in Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort but today the sun is shining and all is good with the world. No fresh snow overnight so today everyone is riding nice firm groomers with still plenty of soft stuff to be found if you look. Should be the same tomorrow till later in the day when there will be some more snow continuing through Sunday, although there is also a slight chance of some rain lower down.

Over the weekend there will be all kinds of goodies to trial including snowbikes. Check it out next to the Nagasaka ticket box between 10-3 on Saturday and Sunday.

Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 23 January 2014

At the moment in the village we have some light snow falling, which has continued on and off for the past 12 hours. Temperatures are cold so the snow quality will be very good. Since last lifts yesterday we have had around 10cm of accumulation at the the summit and 20cm across the mid mountain. This indicates windblown conditions, but at the moment the wind is light.

Yesterday was an epic day on the hill. Very few people meant it was possible to have entire runs to yourself. Amongst the trees there were vast fields of untracked powder which was perfect depth with around 30cm of accumulation throughout the day.

Looking at the forecast ahead we should see a clearing trend later in the afternoon and a full bluebird day tomorrow. Unfortunately temperatures should warm briefly tomorrow before further snowfalls set in Sunday. At this point in time moderate to heavy falls are expected.
